Here’s how to temporarily deactivate WhatsApp account

Because WhatsApp is one of the most widely used messaging apps in the world, it has played an important role in assisting people in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has further virtualized people’s connections, which has since become a trend.

WhatsApp has recently gotten a lot of attention because of its controversial privacy policies, which revealed what kind of data the platform collects and shares with its parent company, Facebook. Since May 15, the policy has been in effect.

WhatsApp, on the other hand, has assured users that they will be able to use the app even if they have not accepted the new privacy policy.

Because of the uncertainty surrounding WhatsApp’s new privacy policies, many users have migrated to alternative platforms such as Signal and Telegram.

So, if you still want to deactivate your WhatsApp account temporarily or delete your account, here is a step-by-step guide to permanently delete your WhatsApp account.

Here’s how to delete a WhatsApp account:

Step 1: Open WhatsApp account

Step 2: Head over to Settings menu > Account > Delete my account

Step 3: Enter your mobile number in the full international format and select the Delete my Account option

Step 4: Select a reason as to why you wish to delete the account

Step 5: Tap on the Delete my Account option

WhatsApp notes that “it may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to delete your WhatsApp information.”
